He said: "We put sanctions on several cabinet members".

Mr Brunson has been in prison in Turkey since 2016 and is accused of being involved in the coup against President Tayyip Erdogan.

The White House defended a slew of tariffs and sanctions that have substantially weakened Turkey's currency and forced regulators to take steps to curb financial flows out of the country. The United States was the fourth-largest source of imports to Turkey past year, accounting for $12 billion of imports, according to International Monetary Fund statistics.

"President Trump's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum is about protecting American national security", the spokesperson said.

"We've already responded based on the World Trade Organization rules and will continue to do so", Pekcan was quoted as saying by the state-run Anadolu news agency.

"They have not proven to be a good friend", Mr Trump said of Turkey during the Cabinet meeting.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump said that the United States "will pay nothing" to Turkey for the release of detained American pastor Andrew Brunson, who he called "a great patriot hostage".

The lira has staged a small recovery but that is threatened by a fresh tweet from US President Donald Trump.

The lira has lost almost 40 percent of its value against the dollar this year, sparking a sell-off in emerging market currencies and weighing on global stocks.

Turkey's finance minister Berat Albayrak has insisted that the country will come out out the currency crises stronger.

Turkey has the highest foreign exchange-denominated debt among emerging markets, Societe Generale said in its note on Friday, estimating its short-term external debt at $180 billion and total external debt at $460 billion. Both Brunson and top USA officials say the accusations are false.

Trump said the United States had helped Turkey in a related incident, but that the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally had not repaid the favour.

Gold prices shed over one per cent on Thursday.

.

"Qatar & Turkey's relationship goes beyond strategic partnerships", Qatar's interior minister Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani tweeted in the wake of the announcement. "Can such a thing be accepted?"

Turkey and Qatar have traditionally maintained good ties.

The problem with the new strategy is that it aims directly towards Apple which remains unaffected as Turkey relies on Apple and not the other way around, according toMashable.

"Unless the United States starts respecting Turkey's sovereignty and proves that it understands the dangers that our nation faces, our partnership could be in jeopardy", he asserted.
